Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to Attend a Conference, Panel, or Pageant
By Danielle Nicole

Happy Tuesday ladies!
This spring is all about conferences, pageants, and panels, and Fashion Bomb reader Rashida will be attending one very soon!

She wrote writes, “Hi FashionBomb! I will be in attendance at a pageant that celebrates natural hair and wanted to know what is a stylish yet comfortable outfit to wear since the contest runs 3 hours long?”

The key to pulling off a comfortably chic ensemble is to dress up casual pieces. Jazz up simple wardrobe staples with punchy prints and noteworthy accessories to create your desired look.

For look #1, pluck a pastel blue v neck jumpsuit (find similar style here) accented by a botanical print clutch, silver block heel sandals, and a beaded braided necklace in a peachy hue.

Cap off the look with a spring inspired beauty palette including a creamy coral-pink lip and a pastel green nail lacquer.

A knee length skirt in a playful print adds a stylish twist to black and white staples. Mix in a basket weave clutch, a beaded tassel pendant necklace, and sunburst button earrings.

Lastly, add a vibrant eyeshadow option and a bubble gum pink mani for an additional pop of color.

And one of my favorite wardrobe must haves this season is a chic pair of culottes. Give the look an unexpected spin with a lavender gingham print knitted sweater.

Add additional flare with a leather clutch bag in an etched print, a lace-up cutout bootie or a printed flat, and a statement jewelry piece. Complete the look with a sassy metallic lid.

 And that’ll do it! See even more conference style inspiration in our Real Style post from this weekend.
